Three lathes acquired in five years

Based in Steinhagen, Germany, wastewater pump manufacturer Pentair Jung Pumpen, has invested in three CNC lathes from CMZ in the just five years, mainly for turning steel and cast-iron components.

“We have found the ideal partner in CMZ,” states managing director Stefan Sirges. “Just like at Jung Pumpen, for them, quality is a crucial element in the manufacturing of their lathes. Our third CNC lathe in just five years; I think that says it all. The whole package – the product, service and consultation – is excellent.”

The trio of CMZ CNC lathes at Pentair Jung Pumpen comprises TD-35-Y-1350, TC-30-Y-800 and TC-30-Y-800-L-servo+GL20II models.

Pentair Jung Pumpen started operations in 1924 when the business was founded by plumber Heinrich Jung in Steinhagen.” That humble plumbing business is now a premium manufacturer of wastewater pumps that employs over 350 people, with a yearly turnover of €78m. Since 2007 it has belonged to Pentair Plc, a global supplier of water technology solutions.

Quality is not just a cornerstone of business strategy, it is written into the company’s DNA and forms its main motto. When the moment came to renew its existing machine tools, quality was a non-negotiable condition for choosing a suitable partner.

Sirges admits that when he came across CMZ and learnt about the painstaking manufacturing process of the lathes in depth, his mind was made up. For customers such as Pentair Jung Pumpen, for which quality at every stage of the process is fundamental, this aspect is a deciding factor.
